About this Workshop

Workshop Format

Workshops maximize the exchange of ideas among attendees and presenters through brief technical ‎presentations followed by extended Q&A periods. Focused topics attract an informed audience eager to ‎discuss issues critical to advancing both technology and best practices.‎

Many of the presentations are in the form of case studies, highlighting engineering achievements and ‎lessons learned. In order to stimulate frank discussion, no proceedings are published and members of the ‎press are not invited to attend.‎

Attend an SPE In-Person Event - Your Safety is our Primary Concern

This November SPE Canada is excited to finally be holding our first in-person events since the pandemic started! We have received feedback from many of our members who welcome the transition back to live events and are looking forward to getting out from behind their screens and connecting with colleagues and peers at these technical workshops. It is our hope that companies support SPE Canada by sending their employees to our events.

The decision to return to in-person events has been made with much consideration and care, and we want attendees to feel safe. SPE Canada and the venues where we will be  holding events will be following the Restrictions Exemption Program (REP). More information about the REP and the safety precautions we will be following is available in a one page PDF. We encourage you to share this with your colleagues and management.

Proceedings from the workshop will not be published; therefore, formal papers and handouts are not ‎requested of speakers or panel members. A URL containing released copies of the workshop presentations ‎will be available to attendees following the workshop. A workshop summary will be prepared by the ‎technical program committee for public release, but no other information.‎

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)‎

Attendees will receive 1.6 CEUs.‎ One CEU equals 8 contact hours of participation. CEUs are awarded through SPE Professional Development ‎for participation and completion of SPE workshop. A permanent record of a participant’s involvement and ‎awarding of CEUs will be maintained by SPE. ‎
